    Installed the gates timing kit with water pump, resealed the entire front of the engine, and swapped all the accesory belts, and changed the motor mounts (OE replacement). As for the brakes...just kept the old StopTech BBK from a decade ago and installed new slotted rotors from RRE. Replaced the entire stock rear brake assembly (OE from rockauto with Mitsubishi fluid from STM) and this took some readjusting of the parking brake which I still haven't nailed down perfectly. Now that the car runs well and stops well, its drivetrain maintenance time. Just ordered the fluids/hardware for a full tranny/diff fluid change. The maintenance never stops! Uploading more pictures soon.

    Got some work done on these brakes... they've seen better days. Still waiting on Hawk HPS pads to come in. Constant work in progress!
